IIUG Conference 2013 : A huge success

IIUG 2013 was yet again a successful IIUG conference. This year’s conference had the General Manager of IBM Information Management Mr. Bob Picciano deliver an excellent key note to the Informix community, which reinforced IBM’s vision with Informix in the coming years. The other highlight was Jerry Keesee’s (IBM Informix Director) keynote which was focused on the latest version of Informix – V12.1. 

The launch of Informix in March made the IIUG Conference more exciting as there were a lot of sessions focused on the new enhancements in V12.1. With over 100 sessions in 3 days 2013 IIUG Conference was one of the most successful Informix events conducted and we look forward to an even more exciting 2014 IIUG Conference.

Here is an article by Stuart Litel (President IIUG) summarizing the conference.Hope that you enjoy reading it.

Until next time,

Louis
